Vinga is a small island ten nautical miles outside Gothenburg's harbour entrance in Sweden. The 19th century Vinga Lighthouse is famous not only as a beacon in the waterway of the Swedish west coast, but also as the place where the Swedish poet laureate Evert Taube grew up. Today Vinga is a tourist attraction, with boats to and from Gothenburg harbour.
